SculpSure FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SculpSure®?
SculpSure® is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles. This 25 minute procedure destroys up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery (references available upon request).

How Does it Work?
Applicators will be placed on your desired treatment area to administer light-based energy, which treats and injures fat cells. In the weeks following treatment, the body naturally eliminates the injured fat cells, resulting in a slimmer appearance.

Is SculpSure® right for me?
SculpSure® is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise. SculpSure® is not a weight loss treatment.

How many treatments will I need?
Most patients see some results with as little as one treatment. We strongly suggest you commit to a series of 3 treatments spaced at least 6 weeks apart to achieve satisfactory results. We offer special pricing for this.

What should I expect during the treatment?
Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is well-tolerated.

When will I see results?
Many patients start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to eliminate the destroyed fat cells; optimal results are usually seen at 12 weeks.

How long will the results last?
Fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate. But many factors affect the size, shape and contour of the body including diet, weight and exercise.

How long before I can resume normal activities?
There is no downtime with SculpSure®, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work right after.

What is the difference between fat (cell) loss and weight loss?
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure® treatment, the destroyed fat cells will never return. With weight loss, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas. Destroying fat cells (with SculpSure®) is better than shrinking them.
